Windows Question

Security for new windows


Just had one window put in upstairs - a Veka. I noticed the locking system is different to the existing older windows. It is a 2 point espagnolette. Searching on the Internet and Youtube there are demonstrations which show there are superior locking systems - Shootbolt, Roto TSl, Kenrck Easi-fit.

Now I am looking to replace some windows downstairs I have to think about security.

Can Roto and Kenrick be fitted to Rehau or Veka windows?

For a downstairs windows some of which have been previously jemmeyed, which locking systems do you guys prefer - shootbolt, roto etc- and what are the pros and cons? Thx
